Requirements and Conditions for Certification
(1)The applicant for certification shall be responsible for the selection of the location and the proper maintenance of all plantings being grown. The applicant shall also be responsible for maintaining the identity of all Allium seed lots planted.
(2)Any field unit entered in this certification program shall be kept in a thrifty growing condition and free of plant pests. If in the judgment of the Department there is too much other disease present, or other conditions that preclude easily distinguishing plants with white rot symptoms from plants not infected with white rot, then the field unit will be deemed incapable of being certified.
(3)Plants growing in the field unit must be discernibly free of white rot to qualify for certification. Any plant or plants within the field unit found with white rot will disqualify the entire field unit from certification. A sample of the infected plants will be collected by the Department for confirmation. One or more of the infected plants within a field unit will be flagged by the Department.
(4)The Department will inspect the field units at least two weeks prior to termination of irrigation.
